Adams Peak in Broke in a reasonably new location in the Hunter Valley for Weddings. The Barn at Adam’s Peak is a good sized space for wet weather backup, but the main reason you want this venue is for such amazing outdoor spaces. Everything is close and easy to shoot, with dramatic mountains (as far as Australia goes) as the backdrop.
It’s possibly the best outdoor location for a ceremony in the Hunter Valley. However, the sun angle requires an overcast day or a late afternoon time-slot to have everyone in shade in summer.
In order to update this page more often, I’m planning to write up locations with recommendations and caveats. If you have any questions feel free to email me or to comment below.
Another tick for this location is that it is easy to have it all in one location, with no need to travel. This means it is easy to fit everything into 8 hours coverage, without feeling rushed. Of course, if other locations are required or coverage until the end is wanted, we do offer unlimited packages. It is nice to not need to worry about the clock!
Here a a couple of shots of the location (Adams Peak, Broke). The first is a December outdoor ceremony on an overcast day. The second is the space in front of The Barn. This works really well for outdoor receptions.
There’s one thing that can be a positive or negative point. Broke is deep in the Hunter Valley if you are coming from Sydney. It’s about an extra half an hour past Cessnock. Having said that, there is still a reasonable amount of accommodation nearby. Many weddings organise coaches so people can drink and be dropped off at their hotels back in Cessnock.
